Newborn weight loss is a normal and expected occurrence. Most healthy full term infants will lose approximately 5-7 percent of the their birthweight in the first five days of life. After the infant is born, monitoring the infant’s weight and calculating the percentage of birthweight that is lost, helps assess the infant’s hydration status and success with breast or formula feeding. As a general rule, any birthweight loss of greater than 10%, requires special attention and a full feeding evaluation by a healthcare professional. Most full term infants will reach their birthweight at approximately 2-3 weeks of age. The Baby Scale app is provides a fast and accurate calculation of an infant’s weight loss displayed as a “percentage of birthweight lost".
